“Life is a song, sometimes we cry it but mostly we must sing it” – Gunther
(When I was seriously challenged in my life, this is a saying that kept me standing).
Who is Günther Tonitz?
I love to read and have a vast subject list that interests me.
I am a husband, a father and love to spend time with my family. My primary relationship with my wife is precious, as is my relationship with God.
I have been living in the same community for the last 30 years. Being part of the local church and schools, is a privilege and I enjoy my time spent there.
I started working in my father’s business when I was 12 years old, as his travel partner, tool assistant and computer trainer.
This extended to Power Transformers in later years, as his business interests grew. I treasure the valuable lessons and relationships that I experienced with him.
Power Transformers is an extension of my family and community.
Managing people always brings with it certain stress factors.
